Idelle Weber’s paintings give, according to many critics, just as direct a picture of the New Yorker as the New York skyline gives a picture of the city. —Review of the Bertha Schaefer Gallery exhibition, translated from the Haagse Post, April 13, 1963.
"Idelle Weber: Postures and Profiles from the 50s and 60s" on view through December 15.

James R. (“Jim”) Hedges, IV has been an active art collector and patron for over 20 years. He has served on The Drawings Acquisition Committee at the Museum of Modern Art, a Founder of The American Friends of the Tate Gallery, a Trustee of The DIA Foundation, a Trustee of ArtPace, and a member of the National Committee for the Whitney Museum of American Art, among many others. With a focus on photography by Andy Warhol, Jim has acquired and placed more Warhol photography than any other collector, private dealer or gallery in the world.
Pat Hackett met Andy Warhol in the autumn of 1968 while she was an undergraduate at Barnard looking for a part time job. From there she became one of Warhol’s closest confidants; as Editor of The Andy Warhol Diaries Hackett spoke to Warhol every morning, Monday through Friday, for one to two hours as he detailed his day to The Diary. She took the original 20,000 pages of Diary entries and narrowed them down to “the best material and the most representative of Andy.”

"She believes that the human posture, the profile, often tell more about the person than his facial expression, and her figures, among them many men, are only expressed in black." — Review of the Bertha Schaefer Gallery exhibition, translated from the Haagse Post, April 13, 1963.

Opening tomorrow, Saturday, November 3 Warhol’s Social Media at the High Line Nine, 507 West 27th Street. Hollis Taggart is pleased to present its first exhibition of unique photographs by Andy Warhol (1928-1987). The exhibition will be on view from November 3-24.
Best known as the defining Pop artist of his generation, Warhol’s portraits of celebrities, socialites, and other notables are held in virtually every prominent modern art collection in the world. These iconic paintings of larger-than-life figures began through the intimate, immediate medium of photography, specifically his Polaroid Big Shot camera. He was so enamored of the process that, once given a camera in the late 1960s he was never without one again, famously calling it his “date.”

In conjunction with our formally representing Idelle Weber, Hollis Taggart is presenting an exhibition of Weber’s work, the gallery’s third show in its new, street-level space on West 26th Street. Opening November 8, 2018, the exhibition will focus on Weber’s work from the 1960s, with a few earlier and later works as well. The exhibition, titled "Idelle Weber: Postures and Profiles from the 50s and 60s," will feature more than 30 works, including Lucite cube sculptures, collages, and gouache and tempera on paper works. These works address some of the themes that occupied and inspired Weber throughout her career, including the corporate world, fashion, politics, and women in society.
